Player Outlook

Darrel Williams will compete for a roster spot with the Chiefs this season, and he could be the No. 3 running back for the team behind Damien Williams and Carlos Hyde. Darrel Williams' main competition for the No. 3 job will likely come from rookie Darwin Thompson, and we expect Thompson to win that job. But if Williams is No. 3 on the depth chart, it would take Damien Williams and Hyde getting hurt, as well as the coaching staff trusting Darrel Williams with a heavy workload, for Fantasy owners to consider him a starting option. Ignore him in all formats on Draft Day.

Player News
  • Williams shared backfield reps with Damien Williams, Carlos Hyde and Darwin Thompson during the offseason program, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports. Darrel Williams caught on as an undrafted rookie last year and had a late-season stretch as the Chiefs' No. 2 running back after Kareem Hunt was cut and Spencer Ware was injured. Both players found new teams in the offseason, but Kansas City brought in Hyde and Thompson to compete for depth roles, leaving Darrel Williams on the roster bubble ahead of training camp. Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has already named Damien Williams as the starter.

  • Williams played 20 snaps -- all on special teams -- Sunday in the Chiefs' 37-31 overtime loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. The undrafted rookie out of LSU had been acting as the top backup to Damien Williams since Week 15 against the Chargers but dropped to third on the depth chart Sunday with Spencer Ware cleared to return from a hamstring injury. Ware will become an unrestricted free agent in March and is no lock to be re-signed, potentially paving the way for Darrel Williams to reclaim a more prominent role behind Damien in 2019. Even if Ware isn't retained, however, there's still a decent likelihood that the Chiefs will address their running-back room via trade, free agency or the draft.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Logs career-high carries
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams rushed a career-high 11 times for 31 yards in Week 17 against the Raiders. Nearly all of Wiliams' work came late in a blowout, so there is very little to take away from the fact that he split carries with Damien Williams evenly on the day. He should serve as a backup in the playoffs and should be in the running to retain a spot as a depth option again in 2019.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Suits up Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. He and Charcandrick West are thus in line to work in complementary roles behind Damien Williams on Sunday, with Spencer Ware (hamstring) inactive once again.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Week 17 status in question
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Raiders. Williams made an abbreviated exit last Sunday at Seattle due to a hamstring injury. Although he proceeded to practice in full Wednesday through Friday, the Chiefs opted to place a "questionable" tag on the reserve running back. Spencer Ware (hamstring) is in the exact same boat as he attempts to return from a two-game absence. If Ware is active, he could take on the largest share of the work given to the backfield, leaving the Williamses (also, Damien) the occasional touch.
